Working Alone? It's Never Lonely When There Are Cats!

I’ve always had cats, always loved them. But working from home for the past twelve years means I’ve become a lot more familiar with the rhythm of their lives, the way their minds work, the things they like and dislike. 
Because cute photos of cats are so ridiculously popular, and as a mark of love and respect to feline friends past and present, here are some of my favourite cat photos. Respect to Molly, Alice, Chunky, Rosie and Betty, all long gone. And to Dave and Steve, both very much alive and kicking.

Lovely little Alice, much missed, enjoying the lush grass. She died aged 23.

Chunky the cat
Lovely old Chunky, smiling at me on the mosaic patio I made at our first Brighton house.

Dave the kitten
Our cat Dave as a kitten, with his favourite hessian mouse. He stores all his toys in a special corner, and tidies them up after playing with them.
